Why are all these adorable little bears hanging out on my blog page, in a picture shamelessly lifted (for a good cause) from the Mother Bear Project website? Read on, Gentle Listener...
First, many thanks to the generous folk whose names I mention within. These are the latest batch of donors to the podcast. Many Thanks for your kindness and support!
Next, a rousing HUZZAH! for the winners of the 2 goody bags:
Sherri M from Elk Grove, CA
Nanette the Nanny from Arlington, VA
And here's the info about the KAL/CAL to begin in the month of January, 2010:
Use the instructions from one of the links below to knit or crochet a bear for the Mother Bear Project.
Details and donations buttons (you can get the pattern by giving $5 and emailing them that you'd like the pattern)
Various links to the (free) patterns available:
Bear knitted in the round and also here.
The wonderful book, Knitting For Peace by Betty Christiansen
The CAL/KAL starts Jan 1st, officially, and it stops when I am done at least one bear!
One entry for the yarny wonderful prize per bear knitted or crocheted!
Get out those scraps and warm up those hooks and/or needles! I'll start the threads to publish your pics in January!
